From a Foreign City

A hand-colored 'RPPC' (Real Photo Post Card). Almost everything is wrong with this photo-graph--- the 'landscape' orientation, the weird tilted camera angle, the man's rather sour focus on the dog. Still, it's somehow delightful. The colors of the couple's coats are beautiful; the dog poses nobly; the carousel horse (?) adds the necessary fantasy. The woman, if slightly anxious, is a person full of love.

  1. Just about everything that could go wrong in a photo did in this one, and yet the only thing I keep focusing on is that horse. What is the story with this horse?
